Roger S.

Tauranga, BOP, New Zealand

Kia ora my name is Roger! I have lived in this area all my life and been involved in many highly successful businesses.

In 2013 I decided it was time for a new challenge, so I decided to start a new tourism venture that combined my passion for people and my knowledge of this wonderful region and share it with some of the many visitors that come here.

My main focus was to offer an affordable Tour and take the hassle out of organizing your own. I specialize in Tours in the Bay of Plenty, Tauranga and Mount Maunganui and Hobbiton, showing the many aspects of life here and also explore the Geothermal and Cultural heart of New Zealand which is Rotorua.

For passengers arriving on cruises, the Port of Tauranga is unique because you disembark about 300 meters from where we greet you and everything is so accessible thus enabling you to see a lot in the 6-7 hours our tour takes.

* New Zealand Land Transport license accredited

* Qualmark (Tourism Standards Authority) Endorsed Visitor Service .

* Department of Conservation Approved operator status to work & lead in our national protected environmental areas.

* Passenger endorsement license Holder.

I look forward to meeting you in Tauranga to show you our Beautiful Region!
